Elena Holmes BSc (psychology), MA, MSc (Nutritional Therapy), mBANT, mCNHC, mRSM
Hello, I am Elena and I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist/Registered Nutritionist mBANT.
Nutrition is not just a fuel for our body, it can lead us to better physical, mental and even emotional health, greater energy and – last but not least – improved looks! Or it can harm us, if we are not doing it right. I am here to help you to find the way of eating that is best for you – that is personalised according to your health history and requirements, lifestyle, financial and family situation, cooking skills and even tastes. Working together we can find a way of eating that both supports your health and is fun!
My advice is based on rigorous scientific studies. I had amazing university teachers who helped me to acquire the necessary research skills and to develop the capacity of "sifting" through this immense ocean of information and being able to select reliable information. And because of this
I also love boosting various nutrition and diet related myths – and there are plenty, aren't there?
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Be happy and healthy!
